Countertop installation can be a DIY project. However, this usually depends on the material and some specific instances that require the expert skills of a professional. For most countertop installation projects, hiring a contractor is still the best way to go because it ensures high-quality installation and a stress-free remodeling experience.
Concept Bath Systems, a trusted kitchen design expert, lists the top reasons why you should avoid a DIY countertop installation and hire a professional instead.
Access to Right Tools
While it is easy to acquire various tools from home improvement stores, you might want to consider how the costs of purchasing these tools could affect your overall budget. You’ll likely spend a significant amount for the necessary tools. Apart from that, using these tools can be dangerous if you do not know how to use them correctly or if you have only handled them a few times before.
When working with professionals, you no longer have to worry about sourcing these tools and learning how to use them. You can also be sure that your countertop will be measured carefully, eliminating, or at least minimizing, the risk of errors.
Installing certain types of countertops, particularly granite or natural stone countertops, can involve a difficult and time-consuming process. This can especially be the case if you do not have prior experience to installing kitchen countertops. With a professional installer, however, you can have the installation done more quickly and be able to avoid getting stressed out.
It’s common for DIY installations to feature incorrect grout work or obvious grout lines, an uneven slab, and cracks resulting from insufficient support. With a professional installation, you don’t have to worry about such issues. You can rest assured that you will get excellent quality and value for your money.
